Linn’s Stamp News Article on Notre Dame Cathedral Stamps

From Linn’s Stamp News, “…Figure 1. A 1947 French semipostal pictures Notre Dame Cathedral”

Over at Linn’s Stamp News, today is an article on the many stamps there have been for France’s love for Notre Dame Cathedral.

“The image of Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral on fire was seen on television screens and computer screens around the world on April 15. While its spire collapsed, much of its facade still stands and French President Emmanuel Macron has promised to rebuild.

You’ll want to read the entire article. There are six different stamps the article covers and is well written.
